ARABISM = RACISM!
ARABISM = THE RACISM!
Uruba - unsuriyyah
The wild racist virus on a vicious campaign of burning all non-Arab ethnicities down, main victims include:
Arabism Equals Racism
Some things change, others never will - such as the acceptance of anyone else's political rights in a multi-ethnic region that most Arabs see exclusively as "purely Arab patrimony." That's the Arab-Israel conflict in a nutshell; but it is also the core of the Arab-Berber, Arab-Kurd, Arab-Black African, Arab-Copt, Arab-Assyrian, Arab-non-Arab Lebanese conflicts, as well, among others. The Arabs' Anfal Campaign against the Kurds and their actions in Darfur and the rest of the southern Sudan are just a few of many examples of Arab genocidal actions against all who might disagree.
To be accepted, and not literally exterminated, one must do what Egypt's most successful Copt did - consent to this age-old forced subjugation and Arabization. Dr. Boutros Boutros Ghali became a top official in President Anwar Sadat's government and went on to become Secretary General of the United Nations, as well.
"Uncle Butros" instead of "Uncle Tom".
He also instructed that for it to be accepted, Israel, as an entire country, must consent to being Arabized; like those Kurdish kids in Syrian Kurdistan who are forced today to sing songs praising their "Arab identity" and so forth.
Berber Leader: "There Is No Worse Colonialism Than That of the Pan-Arabist Clan that Wants to Dominate Our People"... just as Islamism did not need us to be born and extend, since it is the result of educational policies installed by Arabist governments ...It is ultimately the Arabism as an imperialist ideology
Pan-Arabism & the professor
In the words of political science professor Adeed Dawisha, pan-Arabism at its inception was deeply influenced by European fascism, with the result that "Arab nationalists, infused with the illiberal ideas of cultural nationalism, had almost nothing to say about personal liberty and freedom."
Thus, in keeping with his pan-Arab beliefs, Maksoud has apologized or excused the excesses of assorted Arab tyrannies.
'Chemical Ali' sentenced
Ali Hassan al-Majid, a cousin of Saddam's who is known as Chemical Ali, was sentenced to death for a second time Tuesday for his part in crushing a Shiite uprising in 1991.
Mohammed Oraibi al-Khalifa, a judge for the Iraqi High Tribunal, sentenced Majid and other senior figures from Saddam's government.
Among them were Abdelghani Abdul Ghafor al-Ani, who headed Saddam's Baath Party in southern Iraq at the time of the uprising and who also received a death sentence Tuesday. The former defense minister, Sultan Hashim Ahmad al-Tai, received a 15-year prison sentence.
Majid already faces a death sentence for his role in a 1981 crackdown on Kurds in northern Iraq.
Judge Khalifa said Tuesday that Majid was guilty of crimes against humanity.
A lawyer for Majid's defense team said that they would not be able to comment until after an appeal is filed.
Majid remained calm, but his co-defendant Ani shouted: "I welcome death if it is for Iraq, for pan-Arabism and for the Baath. Down with the American and Persian occupation."
The judge told Ani to "shut up." In later remarks to his fellow judges, he was overheard saying: "All the Baathists are this way. Baathists live as Baathists and die as Baathists."

Since the Iraqi State has been established under the hands of the English, only the Kurds asked for power-sharing, decentralization, and autonomy, and are now insisting on federalism, democracy, and accordance.
The Arab elite see those demands of the Kurds as separatist and rebellion. In short, Kurds were the makers of change in Iraq, but they couldn't find a large front of change around themselves that can accept part of those demands. As a result they have faced big disasters.
...of the governing [Arab] elite, according to their ideological and political backgrounds
The source of that is the very idea of power hunger and centralism that were brought to Iraq by the English in the 1920s, and which was developed by the pan-Arabism movement that was developed in 80 years. This has only brought about disaster.
The Arab League as a useless ideological racist Arabist institution has existed only to promote Arabism and Arab racism against colonised non-Arab nations.
The Kurdish people in Syria has been subjected to racist Arabist policies ... social backwardness and the repression of non-Arab nations and minorities

Betrayed and denied by Imperial Britain, the Assyrian national uprising was suppressed and the Assyrian rights' movement was pigeonholed. For the next decades and under various successive regimes the Assyrians were known by their religion as 'Christians' until the ascent of the new Baathists to power in the hot summer of 1968. Then things started to change.

Progenitor of Wars and Tyrannies: the Falsehood of Pan-Arabism
The deep and hidden reason of the tyrannical oppression practiced throughout the Middle East is the imposition by France and England of pan-Arabic nationalist cliques that intend to dictatorially arabize the various peoples of the Middle East, who are – all – not Arabs.
Husri correctly deduced that it was through education, especially children, that the "new morality" of Arabism was to be transmitted. In this endeavor, he achieved a great success. In this mission he was helped by a certain British advisor to the Iraqi Ministry of education by the name of Lionel Smith. Smith seems to have admired Husri's passionate zeal for education, but is on record for stating that many of Husri's "views were wrong". Husri's attitudes against non-Arabs seem to have been adopted by his son Khaldun al-Husri, a nationalist Arab historian who has attempted to minimize the violent destruction of the Assyrian community in Northern Iraq in the 1920s. This is reflected in:
Husri, H. (1974). The Asyyrian affair. The International Journal of Middle East Studies, 5, 161-176, 344-360.

Islamist Ethnic-Cleansing of Assyrians in Iraq
[August 13, 2008]
Assyrians are not seeking to re-establish Assyria, that is an unrealistic dream. Assyrians simply want to live in peace and freedom, to practice their religion, to teach their language and history. In the last 1400 years, thus has proven to be elusive, as every power that be wanted to assimilate Assyrians. We are called Arab-Christians, Iranian-Christians, Turkish-Christians and now Kurdish Christians... The Arabs had their Ba'ath ideology, with its pan-Arabism, where everyone was an Arab, even if he wasn't
Assyriac: Denied in Its Own Homeland But Accepted in England Therefore, sooner or later Assyrians in their homeland will either submit to absorption into "Pan Arabism Pot" or they will resist and be deported. ...
Assyrians and Kurds were struggling against the common oppressive Pan-Arabist regime of Saddam Hussein
Is Pan-Arabism a Nationalism without a Nation?
For a long period of time those called Arabs were the tribes living in the Arabian Peninsula… After the Islamic conquests, the number of Arabic-speakers began to rise. These new Arabic-speakers could not claim descent from the Arabs, and for many centuries they were not viewed as Arabs, nor did they consider themselves to be such.
The problem is that this totalizing theory did not present realistic and just solutions to the various conflicts that tear apart our region to this day. The policies of forced Arabization; the mistreatment of the Kurdish minority in Iraq, the oppression of the Kurds in Syria, the harassment of the Coptic minority in Egypt and the Assyrians and Chaldeans in Iraq; the provocations against what is left of the Jewish diaspora in a few countries like Yemen, Syria, and Iraq; and the intimidation and cultural negation of any minority that refuses to submit to what the peddlers of Pan-Arabism try to impose on them – all of this does nothing but generate more violence and tragedy.
If the military intervention in Iraq and the deposing of the Pan-Arabist Saddam Hussein regime has had one positive result, aside from the timid beginnings of a democratic political process, it is without doubt the fact that light has been shed on the great sectarian, linguistic, and cultural diversity with which the Middle East is blessed. The question of accepting the other's difference and identity remains the greatest challenge for the Arab nationalists.

Little did they realise that the pan-Arabism based in the Middle East would expand in such fury to North Africa and result in this pan-Arab hysteria, trying to obliterate anything that is native to North Africa and especially its language," Mr Ouzzat says.

If you take a look at Avi Jorisch's Beacon of Hatred, you'll see in the accompanying DVD-Rom the various propaganda clips on Al-Manar which reach out to the Arabs, as Arabs, often using the term "ummat al-Arab" (the Arab Nation), to combat Israel.
Lounsbury: Darfur - On Racism, On Ignorance, [Arabism, Arab supremacist government in Sudan,] On Laziness and just plain stupidity (and Arab responses)
'Genocide in Darfur' (by Samuel Totten, Eric Markusen) Racist ideology plays an important part of the story, as it has in the history of other twentieth century genocides. And the psychology of "genocide" has become familiar through the sorry repetition of genocidal acts that the last century has witnessed. In 1987, Libya used the northwestern Darfur corner as a backdoor to attack Chad. It had equipped and sent out the so-called Arab legion, an Arab supremacist militia, to pursue Arab expansion in the mineral-rich sub-Saharan regions it bordered and to drive out the African tribes. Libya was not orchestrating a simple border raid on a poor country; it was pursuing a new strategy of pan-Arabism, couched in an emotionally charged ideology.
The Sharp distinction between Arabs and Africans in the racially mixed Darfur region had not been drawn until the ideology of pan-Arabism that came out of the Libya made itself felt... when the GoS tried to impose Sharia Law in 1983, it triggered civil war in the South. This marked the first use of government-backed militias... some of the cattle herding... of Darfur were employed in a strategy of brutality, starvation, rape, and pillage that was to be visited upon Darfur two decades later. Complaints of Arab militia harassment in Darfur surfaced in 2003...

Religion is the pivotal factor in the conflict. The North, with roughly two-thirds of Sudan's land and population, is Muslim and Arabic-speaking; the Northern identity is an inseparable amalgamation of Islam and the Arabic language. The South is more indigenously African in race, culture, and religion; its identity is indigenously African, with Christian influences and a Western orientation. [...]
Background: The South
In sharp contrast, the identity of southern Sudan has been shaped primarily by the prolonged resistance to the imposition of Arab and Islamic culture from the North. This has had the effect of unifying the Southerners as black Africans and has geared them toward Christianity and the English language as means of combating Islam and Arabism.
The identity of southern Sudan has been shaped primarily by the prolonged resistance to the imposition of Arab and Islamic culture from the North.
In contrast to the Arabs, the British were associated with the redemption of the South from the Arab slave raids.
A RETURN TO PAN-ARABISM - 30-Dec-94Khaddam, like Nasser in his day, speaks about.. about the need for pan-Arabism in order to block Israel
George Will, "America must preempt next level of terrorism." In 1967, on the eve of the Six-Day War, Egypt's President Nasser proclaimed: "We are confronting Israel and the West as well." Netanyahu says: "The soldiers of militant Islam and Pan-Arabism do not hate the West because of Israel; they hate Israel because of the West." They hate "Zionism as an expression and representation of Western civilization." And they hate America because it is the purest expression of modernity--- individualism, pluralism, freedom, secularism.

...Pan-Arabism should more accurately be seen as a subset, a limited version with more modest initial goals -- today Arabdom, tomorrow the world. And since Islam is a vehicle for Arab imperialism, pan-Arabism means, necessarily, promotion of Islam, and vice-versa. The goal of a unified Arab state, the goal that Nasser was said to embody, was merely a way-station on the path -- fi sabil Allah -- to spreading Islam until it, and therefore the Arabs (the "best of peoples") would everywhere dominate. Pan-Arabism was not, as so many wrong-headed analysts would have it, a movement hostile to Islam or to what is often called, misleadingly, "pan-Islamism" (which is merely the geopolitical dimension of mainstream Islam).
...the assorted versions of pan-Arabism -- Nasserism, Ba'athism -- were seen as alternatives to Islam, when in fact they were not alternatives at all. They merely displayed, for quite specific and local reasons, an emphasis on "Uruba" or Arabdom that was explicable given the impoverished state of the "Islamic world" and the fact that there were local stumbling blocks to pan-Islamism (including the lack of financial wherewithal).
Islamism and Baathism aren't that different. - By Lee Smith ..., "Arab nationalism," Kedourie explained, "affirms a fundamental unbreakable link between Islam and Arabism."
The Ba'ath party was founded in Syria in 1928 by Michel Aflaq and Salah al-Din Bitar with a pan-Arab nationalist program and elements of both Marxism and fascism. Aflaq and Bitar were influenced by Arab nationalist trends that had begun in time of the Turks, inspired in part by the Islamic and Arab reform ideologies of Jamal al-Din al-Afghani (1839-1897), his student Muhammad Abduh (1849-1905), and Abduh's student, Muhammad Rashid Rida (1865-1935). These thinkers called for a renewal of Islam, with limited borrowing of concepts from the West. Abduh in particular was active in promoting Arab autonomy within Ottoman Turkey, and had placed great hopes in the Young Turks. Rida grew increasingly anti-Western with time, and was a great influence on Hassan El-Banna, who founded the Muslim Brotherhood. While Aflaq was a Greek Orthodox Christian, Ba'ath ideology adopted an affinity for Islam, and Pan-Arabists saw one of their goals as asserting the primacy of the Arabs in the Muslim world.
Ba'athism was a deliberate copy of European Fascism; it tried to replace Islam in the people's minds with Arabism, a fascistic glorification af Arab history ...

In his view, the only effective way to counter the pan-Arab "propaganda of hate-mongering and deceit" is to mobilize the Arab liberal movement.

The Philosopher of Islamic Terror... The Islamists and the Pan-Arabists could be compared, in these ambitions, with the Italian Fascists of Mussolini's time, who wanted to resurrect the Roman Empire, and to the Nazis, who likewise wanted to resurrect ancient Rome, except in a German version. The most radical of the Pan-Arabists openly admired the Nazis and pictured their proposed new caliphate as a racial victory of the Arabs over all other ethnic groups. Qutb and the Islamists, by way of contrast, pictured the resurrected caliphate as a theocracy, strictly enforcing shariah, the legal code of the Koran. The Islamists and the Pan-Arabists had their similarities then, and their differences. (And today those two movements still have their similarities and differences -- as shown by bin Laden's Qaeda, which represents the most violent wing of Islamism, and Saddam Hussein's Baath Party, which represents the most violent wing of Pan-Arabism.)

Antisemitism & racism, ARAB COUNTRIES 2003-4, Typical of the Arab rhetoric, Palestinian preacher Shaykh Ibrahim Madayris described the attack on Iraq in a Friday sermon at the `Ijlin Mosque in Gaza, broadcast live on Palestinian Authority TV on 21 March, as “a Crusader Zionist war.” The Crusader, “Zionist America,” he stated, had initiated an attack on “Iraq of Islam and Arabism,” thus expanding the limited notion of the war to Arabs, Muslims and Islam at large.

What kind of role does anti-Semitism play in the Middle East Conflict? At what point does opposition to Israel turn into anti-Semitism? ...The spiritual and physical connection of Jews with Zion has been continuous, preceding by centuries the emergence of Muslim conquerors from the Arabian deserts. Not only that, but over half the Israeli population is not "European" at all. It was uprooted from the Arab Middle East by exclusivist pan-Arabism, Islamic fanaticism, and the pressures of decolonization.
Yet sixty years ago, there were more than a million Jews in Arab lands. Their exodus says it all. Israel integrated them, providing a haven, pride, dignity and freedom as it did for the Jewish survivors of the Holocaust. Palestinian refugees, on the other hand, were left to rot in UN refugee camps by their Arab brethren, fed with revanchist delusions about their inalienable "right of return" to Israel. If the Middle East tragedy is to be resolved, it is these camps – the seedbed of terrorism and an entire culture of hatred – which have to be dismantled and not the thriving Jewish state.
...the Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin Husseini, exploited social discontent, nationalism and religion to incite the Arabs of Palestine against the British and the Jews. His unscrupulous modus operandi and his reliance on frequent assassinations precluded any serious political opposition to his fascist rule. As a result of escalating Arab terrorism, Nazi-Germany decided to support the Mufti and his movement. On July 15, 1937, the Mufti told the German Consul-General in Jerusalem, W. Dohle, that the Palestinian Arabs were united in their “sympathy for the new Germany”. But it was not only the Mufti’s burgeoning relationship with Nazi-Germany that made his ilk of fascism so dangerous. The Mufti’s views, deeply influenced by the Nazis fascist ideology and his diplomatic initiatives quickly became the single unifying political cause celebre of the entire Arab world. Throughout World War II, Nazi propaganda praised the Arab terrorists as freedom fighters. In turn, the Mufti and his followers did everything in their power to weaken Great Britain in Palestine, the Middle East and North Africa.
During the years 1948-1967, pan-Arab ideologies were the rage of the Muslim world. The Iraqi statesman, ‘Abd al-Rahman al-Bazzaz, a leading proponent of conservative pan-Arabism, likened the position of the Arabs in Islam to that of the Russians in world communism. The radical strain of pan-Arabism, however, became far more influential than its conservative counterpart.

...We are proud of our Arab origin, of our Arabism and of being Muslims. The Arabs came to this continent, as pioneers, to disseminate a genuine culture and promote sound principles which have shed enlightenment and civilization throughout Africa at a time when Europe was plunged into the abyss of darkness, ignorance, and doctrinal and scholarly backwardness. It is our ancestors who held the torch high and led the caravan of liberation and advancement; and it is they who provided a superior melting-pot for Greek, Persian and Indian culture, giving them the chance to react with all that was noble in Arab culture, and handing them back to the rest of the world as a guide to those who wished to extend the frontiers of learning.
That lofty declaration “ never mind its hyperbolic accents - but certainly one which Leopold Sedar Senghor would have endorsed as the ringing spirit of Arabite was made just less than a decade after the first gathering of the black writers and artistes of the world, impelled also by the need to situate their race and heritage accurately in a racist world. The claims of black civilization were no less resonant at that conference, no less proud, the mission of race retrieval no less impassioned. And the question we must ask the government of Sudan today is simply this: how does the current manifesto of the Janjaweed, the champions of Arabism, its project of cultural extermination, correspond to Al-Azhariâ's manifesto of enlightenment “ among numerous others. Examine the tomes of attestation with the United Nations' fact-finding missions, examine even the dossiers that have resulted in sealed indictments against named individuals both in government and in the autonomous order of the Janjaweed, soulmates of the Milesovics, the Radovan Karavics, the Radkos of eastern Europe, and tell us if Al-Azhariâ's banner of enlightenment has not been besmirched by his Hitlerian apostles.
The Problem With Darfur's Muslims Is…
They're Not Arabs. Like Iraq's Kurds or North Africa's Amazigh (Berbers).
The title of a recent AP news brief read, "EU May Not Heed Darfur Call."
While the European sycophants of medieval Arab oil sheiks, who recently sentenced a gang rape victim to jail and two hundred lashes, have and will be pouring in billions of dollars in aid and such to support the birth of Arab state # 22 ( 2nd, not 1st, Arab one in "Palestine"), predictably, all they mostly have to offer to support victims of out right Arab murder and racism is hot air.
After the Arabs burst out of the Arabian Peninsula in the 7th century C.E. and slaughtered, conquered, and forcibly Arabized millions of non-Arab peoples in the process, the Sudan (Nubia, etc.) held out for quite some time. In other parts of non-Arab North Africa, native Jews aligned with "Berbers" to resist this conquest as well.
Back in the '60s when I was starting college, the Arab-Israeli conflict, as usual, never left center stage. After the '67 Six Day War--when Israel turned the tables on the latest Arab attempt on its life big time--Israel lost its status as David to the Arab Goliath for daring to refuse to go silently into the night while the rest of the world once again looked on…as the latter is doing today with other Arab victims.
At virtually the same time in the '60s, the first modern civil war broke out between the non-Muslim black south and the Arab and Arabized north in the Sudan.

"…the Sudan is the basis of the Arab thrust into...black Africa, the Arab civilizing mission (Arabism and Pan-Arabism in Sudanese Politics, Journal of Modern African Studies, Vol. 11, #2, 1973, pp. 177-78)."
Rudyard Kipling's late 19th century poem, "The White Man's Burden," supposedly typifies Western colonialist and imperialist attitudes towards the Third World. If that's the case, then what does Nimeiry and the example below, expressed in the Syrian Arab Constitution of the Ba'th, typify…?
"...The Arab fatherland belongs to the Arabs. They alone have the right to direct its destinies...The Arab fatherland is that part of the globe inhabited by the Arab nation which stretches from the Taurus Mountains, the Pacht-i-Kouh Mountains, the Gulf of Basra, the Arab Ocean, the Ethiopian Mountains, the Sahara, the Atlantic Ocean, and the Mediterranean Sea."
Arabs habitually refer to most of the region as "purely Arab patrimony"…the Arab-Israeli and other such conflicts in a nutshell.
The more recent full scale outbreak of violence in the Sudan has an even more revealing twist.
While earlier violence there and elsewhere could largely be seen as modern extensions of the fourteen century -old clash between the Dar ul-Islam and the Dar al-Harb, the one in the Sudan's Darfur (as those in Arab-occupied Kurdistan and much of the rest of North Africa) is mostly about Arab racism and chauvinism…pure and simple. You know, those folks who like to scream about "racist Zionism." Over a thousand years earlier, this led to the overthrow of the Syrian-based Arab imperialist Umayyad Caliphate.
So, in Sudan's western region of Darfur, it's Arab versus black…regardless of religion. Ditto for Arab versus Kurd, Amazigh, and so forth.
In Sudan's largely non-Muslim south, it's a combination of both Arab racism and the conquest of the Dar ul-Islam…as exemplified also in the expected subjugation and dhimmitude of Egyptian Copts, Lebanon's Christians, Near Eastern Assyrians, and Israel, the Jew of the Nations, home to whom Arabs call "their" kilab yahud…Jew dogs.
Think carefully about all the above…especially in light of the additional bare-the necks-of-your-kids-even- further concessions Israel is expected to next make for the sake of a post-Annapolis "peace (of the grave)" with those still dedicated to its destruction--regardless of what the American President and his Secretary of State shamefully proclaim.
Sudan is comprised of 70 percent Muslim and only 5 percent Christian populations, mainly in the south. The root of the north-south conflict is described as religious based and a continuation of the "Islamization and Arabism" of Sudan, which led to the economic and political marginalization of southern Sudanese people

Amazon.com: Islamic Imperialism : A History: Books: Efraim Karsh, Middle East scholar Karsh surveys for a general audience the region's Islamic political past. Parallel to his narrative, Karsh frequently contrasts the universalistic proclamations of Islam with cycles of imperial consolidation and fragmentation. After recounting the Prophet Muhammad's religio-political establishment of Islam, and the discord about his legacy that continues today, Karsh narrates the battles over Muhammad's caliphate that eventuated in the Umayyad and Abbasid Empires. Karsh's commentary often looks forward to contemporary ideologues of Islam who ransack history to justify grievances. In Karsh's coverage, the irruption of the Crusaders into the Levant hardly provoked a jihad to eject them; that occurred, in his account, through politically ordinary processes of empire building, eventually by the celebrated Saladin. Islamic unity and zeal, however, had always to be affirmed by reestablishers of the caliphate, a theme Karsh incorporates into his chronicling of the rise and decline of the Ottoman Empire, the distribution of its territories after World War I, and varieties of pan-Arabism prevalent after World War II. An informative foundation for further exploration of Islamic history.

...This Arab-Islamic union was given ideological heft last week at a two-day conference in Doha, Qatar. "The Sixth Pan-Arab and Islamic Conference" brought together some 270 leading pan-Arab and jihadist leaders from throughout the world. The jihadists, led by Sheikh Yusuf Qaradawi, included Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal, Hizbullah leader Hassan Hadroug and the Iraqi Sunni jihadist ideologue Sheikh Hathir al-Dari.
Among the pan-Arabists was Khair al-Din Haseeb, who the US Army refers to as the "father of pan-Arab nationalism." Iranian and Iraqi Shiite ayatollahs also reportedly attended.
Qaradawi announced that the goal of the conference was to merge the pan-Arab and Islamic wars against the US and Israel specifically and against the infidels generally. In his words, "All Arabs, Kurds, Sunni, Shia, right-wingers, left-wingers should be united in the full-scale battle with the enemies. They are launching a political, economic, social and civilizational, and cultural battle against us and we should unify our efforts to stand up to it."
The participants all echoed Qaradawi's call for Fatah and Hamas to formally merge and so reflect the wider trend of consolidation in the cause of jihad that is occurring throughout the Arab world. As Qaradawi put it, "Pan-Arabism and Islam are very closely linked. There is no contradiction between them. Whoever is seeking to separate Pan-Arabism from Islam is trying to separate the soul from the body."
That the pan-Arabists and Islamists are military allies in the global jihad was made clear this week in the Horn of Africa as Sunday Ethiopia invaded Somalia.

Pan-Arabism Causes Conflict in the Middle East
by Efraim Karsh
About the author: Efraim Karsh is a professor and director of Mediterranean studies at King's College at the University of London. He is a coauthor of Empires of the Sand: The Struggle for Mastery in the Middle East.
Since its formation in the wake of World War I, the contemporary Middle Eastern system based on territorial states has been under sustained assault. In past years, the foremost challenge to this system came from the doctrine of pan- Arabism (or qawmiya), which sought to eliminate the traces of Western imperialism and unify the Arab nation, and the associated ideology of Greater Syria (or Suriya al-Kubra), which stresses the territorial and historical indivisibility of most of the Fertile Crescent. Today, the leading challenge comes from Islamist notions of a single Muslim community (the umma).

Arab Nationalism Run Rampant at Middlebury
By Franck Salameh
August 18, 2006
At Middlebury College's Arabic Summer School, where I recently taught Arabic, students were exposed to more than intensive language instruction. Inside the classroom and across campus, administrators and language teachers adhered to a restrictive Arab-nationalist view of what is generically referred to as the "Arab world." In practice, this meant that the Middle East was presented as a mono-cultural, exclusively Arab region. The time-honored presence and deep-rooted histories of tens of millions of Kurds, Assyrians, Copts, Jews, Maronites, and Armenians--all of whom are indigenous Middle Easterners who object to an imputed "supra-Arab" identity--were dismissed in favor of a reductionist, ahistorical Arabist narrative. Those who didn't share this closed view of the Middle East were made to feel like dhimmi--the non-Muslim citizens of some Muslim-ruled lands whose rights are restricted because of their religious beliefs.

As long as modern Egypt will proclaim itself to be "essentially an Arab and Muslim land" uncertainty will continue to weigh on the Copts, the only remaining native religious minority after the forced departure of eighty thousand Jews.. When Nasser came to power, Egypt resolutely turned its face towards Arabism ...became its staunchest champion and Cairo proclaimed Islamic unity pursued an active policy of pan-arabism which identified Islam with Arabism. The Precarious situation of the minorities became even ore acute. Was it possible to be a Christian and an Arab?

Now a new phase is evident in the nationalization of Israeli Arabs... This latest development points out the danger that Israel is facing from inside, as well as the danger of Pan-Arabism and Pan-Islamism which are forces that are not easily --if at all-- changeable. And similar threats are aimed at the US.

The Palestinians' genocide campaign The civilian targets are selected on a racist basis - all Jews are fair game, and if a non-Jew (Arab) is killed, that is an unfortunate accident.
Are the Israeli Arabs a Trojan Horse... The P.L.O. and its leader, Arafat.. a macro concept of "Pan Arabism," espousing the idea of a "Greater Palestine" in which every Arab is considered to be an integral part of a territorial dream... Their "liberation" means first of all the espousing of a Palestinian identity and national consciousness. After all they, they have loyalty to their brothers and sisters in the West Bank and Gaza or in the U.N. refugee camps in Lebanon and Syria. They also have loyalty to the great idea of Pan Arabism.
BISH-ARABISM COULD be defined as a radical and rapid shift among Israeli Arabs - especially their representatives in the Knesset - from relative moderation to extremism, spearheaded by Azmi, who himself went from being an advocate of peaceful coexistence between Jews and Arabs in Israel to a preacher against Israel's existence.
In maps, textbooks, lectures, and other teaching materials used in the instruction of Arabic, Israel didn't exist, and the overarching watan 'Arabi (Arab fatherland) was substituted for the otherwise diverse and multi-faceted "Middle East." Curious and misleading geographical appellations, such as the "Arabian Gulf" in lieu of the time-honored "Persian Gulf," abounded. Syria's borders with its neighbors were marked "provisional," and Lebanon was referred to as a qutr (or "province") of an imagined Arab supra-state.
Nor was the Arabic school's narrow definition of Middle Eastern culture restricted to the classroom. Alcohol was prohibited during school events and student parties, and although a school official claimed the ban reflected Middlebury's campus policy, beer and wine flowed freely during cookouts and gatherings organized by the German, French, and Spanish schools. Banning alcohol is a matter of Islamic practice and personal interpretation--not accepted behavior throughout the Middle East--and reflected the Arabic school's conflation of Arabic with Islamic.
Similarly, the Arabic school's dining services conformed to the halal dietary restrictions of Islam, an act implying that all Arabic speakers are Muslims, and that all Muslims are observant; yet less that 20 percent of the Arabic school community was Muslim. No such accommodations were made for Jewish students who kept kosher, even though they outnumbered the Muslims.
Arab nationalism was also evident in the school's official posture toward America's national holidays. The Arabic school was alone among Middlebury programs to ignore Fourth of July festivities. Worse, visiting faculty from the Middle East cold-shouldered older students sporting the closely cropped hair, courteous manners, and discipline suggesting membership in the U.S. armed forces. Most students and faculty avoided contact altogether with those dubbed hukuma (government) or jaysh (army).
Such attitudes and practices aren't confined to Middlebury. A former student of mine who recently took a summer Arabic course at Georgetown University relates that one of her professors, an otherwise excellent language instructor, refused to allow the word "Israel" to be uttered in class. And his bigotry wasn't confined to the Jewish state: during a class discussion on nationalism, my former student argued that "many Lebanese did not think of themselves as Arabs." The instructor's response: "while they might say that, it's just politics, because all Lebanese people know on the inside that they are indeed Arabs."
Arabism flies in the face of historical fact. Ethnic minorities in Lebanon, as throughout the Middle East, have suffered at the hands of Arabs since the Arab-Islamic invasions in the early Muslim period. Of the efforts of Arab regimes and their ideological supporters in the West to de-legitimize regional identities other than Arab, Walid Phares, a well-known professor of Middle East studies, has written: "[The] denial of identity of millions of indigenous non-Arab nations can be equated to an organized ethnic cleansing on a politico-cultural level." This tradition of culturally suppressing minorities is the wellspring of the linguistic imperialism regnant at Middlebury's Arabic Summer School.
Yet healthier models for language instruction are easy to find. In the Anglophone world, Americans, Irish, Scots, New Zealanders, Australians, Nigerians, Kenyans, and others are native English-speakers, but not English. Can anyone imagine an English language class in which students are assumed to be Anglican cricket fans who sing "Rule Britannia," post maps showing Her Majesty's empire at its pre-war height, and prefer shepherd's pie and mushy peas? Yet according to the hyper-nationalists who run Middlebury's Arabic language programs, all speakers of Arabic are Arabs--case closed.
A leading Arabic language program shouldn't imbue language instruction with political philosophy. It should instead concentrate on teaching a difficult language well--on promoting linguistic ability, not ideological conformity. Academics should never intellectualize their politics and then peddle them to students under the guise of scholarship. Those who do may force a temporary dhimmitude on their student subjects, but in the end they only marginalize their field and themselves.
This marginalization has never been clearer than it is today, when Middle East studies scholars are depressingly consistent in their condemnation of American policy in the region... Arabist orthodoxy...
Since they caused both at once, the historical synonymity of Islam and Arabism was created, and even if this identification is considered wrong in theological terms, it became the de facto reality. As a Muslim of Indian-Pakistani origins, Fatah sees the blending of Islam and Arabism as the distortion of the former, and his words echo the sense of many non-Arab Muslims that Arabs consider them to be "second-rate" Muslims.

As a wave of pan-Arabism swept the Middle East in the 1950s and 1960s, the Syrian government decided in 1962 to strip thousands of Kurds of their citizenship. The method: a census supposedly designed to root out "alien infiltrators" from Turkey. If a Kurd could not prove residency in Syria since 1945, he or she lost Syrian citizenship. This fate befell 120,000 Kurds.
Today over 225,000 Kurds in Syria are designated as "foreigners", out of a total Kurdish population of around 1.5 million. The Baath Party launched an official Arabization campaign in 1963 that began to stamp out Kurdish street names, Kurdish publications, and even Kurdish personal names.
The Bullets of 'Urubah
"I saw him without a gun, shooting at me, and his bullets pierced me just like all the other bullets." Rashid al-Daif, Passage to Dusk
Two days ago I had a conversation with a Syrian friend, whom I will call Saleem, about the merrits of "Arabist" or Arab nationalist governance. Saleem, being from Syria and having gone through the Ba'thi nationalist school system, for the most part defended the idea that Arabism is positive, particularly for Arabs. "Why shouldn't the Arabs have a country? If we are all Arabs, why should we not all have the same country, like Italy or Spain?" Saleem asked me. My response to this was, What about the people that live with you who are not Arabs? And why should ethnicity be the basis for this "country"? "Because Arabs are one nation!" I was told hotly. "We should be free from outside aggression like Zionism and colonialism," he continued. The last question I was able to ask Saleem was "What do you mean? We are free from those things..., the only aggression is against Arabs by Arab dictators," Saleem's response was, "Better an Arab than a dog for that."

In Yemen, there is a minority of people with dark complexion called al-Akhdam. Historically speaking, their presence in Yemen has been a result of the Ethiopian pre- Islam invasion in 525 BC. Settling down in Yemen and throughout the years have adapted a life style in which they practice many trades especially folklore dancing, handicrafts, cleaning and some other free trades. Unofficial statistics show that the population of this minority reaches 500,000 inhabitants living in Sana’a, Shabowa, Lahj, Abyan, Aden and al-Hudaida... they complain from the harassment that al-Akhdam females suffer by the local men who find weddings an opportunity to do so with pretty dancers or singers. Demographic distribution of al-Akhdam in the suburbs is defined according to the tribes. For every tribe has its own Akhdam group of men and women. This group knows its limits and can not cross the red lines between them and the tribe they are living with. In the cities this trend is almost extinct because in most weddings al-Akhdam’s artistic services have been substituted with that of the locals, by this depriving the Akhdam of one source of income. Recently, al-Akhdams have started to become relatively politically active, and in the democratic environment and multi-party system, they have decided to form a political party of their own calling it “Free Blacks Society” whose sole intention is to defend their rights and demand their needs to be fulfilled enhancing by that their living.

UN COMMITTEE ON THE ELIMINATION OF RACIAL DISCRIMINATION, Yemen, 2006
The Committee is deeply concerned at the persistent reports of de facto discrimination against descent-based, culturally distinct communities, among others, the Al-Akhdam. The Committee is particularly concerned about discrimination that interferes with or impairs the enjoyment of their economic, social and cultural rights (arts. 2 (2) and 5). In light of its general recommendation 29, the Committee recommends that the State party develop and put into action a national strategy with the participation of members of affected communities, including special measures to be adopted in accordance with article 2 (2) of the Convention, in order to eliminate discrimination against members of marginalized and vulnerable descent-based groups. In particular, the Committee recommends that the State party develop legislation and practice prohibiting all discriminatory practices based on descent in employment, housing and so as to ensure equal access to health care and social security services for members of affected communities, in particular the Al-Akhdam.

The celebrated Yemeni poet Ali Al-Maquarri warned that Yemen's blacks, pejoratively called Al-Akhdam (servants), are ill- treated and suffer a fate far worse than slavery and that they have to contend with systematic racial discrimination. His novel "Black tastes, black odours", was received with much critical acclaim in his native Yemen and elsewhere in the Arab world. Al-Maquarri's views, the paper said, will hopefully prompt others -- media workers, writers and human rights activists -- in the Arab world to be more sensitised to the cause of blacks.

Don't let the Arabist/anti-Semitic taint and news blackouts in the media fool you...
TV network Al-Arabiya, on its Web site, solicited readers' responses to the attacks. Several expressed happiness, with comments such as "Allahu Akbar, thanks be to God," "More power to al Qaeda leader Osama (bin Laden)," and "What did you expect? This is only a response to the what the British government has done to the group regardless of which group it is."
In response, these notes were posted: "To the heroes of Arabism and Jihad, since you are sparing no method to attack the West and you gloat as you try to kill the largest number of civilians. How would you like it if the West relieves itself of your headache by hitting you with one of its nuclear weapons. It takes only minutes and then there will be no heroes, no men and no shish kebab."
Baath Party is a mishmash of socialism and Arabism.
What is the ideology behind Saddam Hussein's (former) regime?
"The Ba'ath ideology mixes pan-Arabism with admiration of Mussolini and Hitler, some ideas of state socialism and the notion of an Arab supremacy which will be realized after the Arabs have liberated themselves from foreign - that means mainly Jewish - influence and British and American imperialism. Ba'athism is strongly anti-communist and anti-imperialist, and it is anti- Semitic from its beginning. Everything in Iraq is explained through this huge conspiracy theory against the Arabs, in general, and Iraq, in particular. Iraq is thought to be the greatest Arab nation and the natural leader of Arab unity."
So Iraq sees itself as the center of the Arab world?
"Yes, the leader of Arab unity. Saddam Hussein dreams of ruling a united Arab nation that would become a superpower confronting East and West. Iraqi children are taught in kindergarten that they have to be strong Arab fighters."
Is Iraqi (Saddam's) Ba'athism Islamist?
"Pan-Arabism has always said that Mohammed is the forefather of pan-Arabism and that Islam was spoiled when it crossed the borders of the Arab world to Iran and Turkey. The task now is to `re-animate' the real Islam that was taught by Mohammed as an Arab ideology. Especially during the Iran-Iraq war, when Iraq had to face the Iranian revolution, they loaded their own ideology with Islamic content. The Iranians and the Zionists, they said, are part of a 2,000-year-old plot to smash Iraq and divide the Arabs. `We are fighting for the real Islam' the regime said, not the kind of spoiled Islam that Iran represents. I think it was a mistake for the Americans to believe, as they did, that Iraq was a stronghold against Islam."
To this day, Islam has retained its imperial ambitions. The dream of regional and world domination has remained very much alive, despite the destruction long ago of the last great Muslim empire, which has left the Islamic caliphate vacant. The 20th century doctrine of pan-Arabism (exemplified by Egypt's Gamal Abdel Nasser), though secular in appearance, has been effectively Islamic in its ethos, worldview, and imperialist vision. Karsh quotes Nuri Said, longtime prime minister of Iraq and a prominent early champion of pan-Arabism: "Although Arabs are naturally attached to their native land, their nationalism is not confined by boundaries. It is an aspiration to restore the great tolerant civilization of the early caliphate."

Similarly, the assorted versions of pan-Arabism Nasserism, Baathism were seen as alternatives to Islam, when in fact they were not alternatives at all. They merely displayed, for quite specific and local reasons, an emphasis on Uruba or Arabdom that was explicable given the impoverished state of the Islamic world and the fact that there were local stumbling blocks to pan-Islamism (including the lack of financial wherewithal). In Turkey Kemalists were in control; in Iran there was the Shah, trying in his maladroit way to emphasize the pre-Islamic past. Pan-Arabism was a version of pan-Islamism, a subset, which at the time seemed to be as much as one could hope for. Nasser or Saddam Hussein could dream of being King of the Arabs, but the idea of a much bigger operation, especially since for both Nasser and Saddam Hussein the most dangerous political opposition was mosque-based (the Muslim Brotherhood for Nasser, the Shia clerics for Saddam Hussein), was out of the question.

Darfur: The Ambiguous Genocide
de Gerard Prunier - 2005
situation in Darfur a "genocide" in September 2004. Its characteristics-Arabism, Islamism, famine as a weapon of war, mass rape, international obfuscation, and a refusal to look evil squarely in the face-reflect many of the problems of the global South in general and of Africa in particular.Journalistic explanations of the unfolding humanitarian catastrophe have been given to hurried generalizations and inaccuracies: the genocide has been portrayed as an ethnic clash marked by Arab-on-African violence, with the Janjaweed militias under strict government control, but neither of these impressions is strictly true. Darfur: The Ambiguous Genocide explains what lies behind the conflict, how it came about, why it should not be oversimplified, and why it is so relevant to the future of the continent. Gerard Prunier sets out the ethnopolitical makeup of the Sudan and explains why the Darfur rebellion is regarded as a key threat to Arab power in the country-much more so than secessionism in the Christian South. This, he argues, accounts for the government'deployment of "exemplary violence" by the Janjaweed militias in order to intimidate other African Muslims into subservience. As the world watches; governments decide if, when, and how to intervene; and international organizations struggle to distribute aid, the knowledge in Prunier'book will provide crucial assistance.

OLD STAND-BY ARABIST RACIST
Their grievance is not really Russian imperialism, or the 5 to 10 percent of the West Bank under dispute, or black African encroachment on Arab land, or purported French insensitivity to legitimate Islamic pride, much less an American crusade to harm Muslims.
All these issues and the hundreds of others from the right to build a reactor in Iran to the desire for a semi-autonomous Chechnya in theory could be discussed, argued about, and adjudicated through democratic dialogue.
But that is impossible. For you see, the real problem is the democratic dialogue itself unknown in the Arab Middle East and much of the Islamic world, and a hindrance to both sharia and the pan-Arabist thug with epaulettes and sunglasses. Yet consensual government alone is the key to ending failed statist economies, gender apartheid, religious intolerance, state-controlled media, and tribalism. It alone might stop the self-induced misery and with it the tedious scapegoating of the Jews and America.
Much of the Islamic Middle East continues to blame others for its own induced catastrophe, apparently unaware thanks to the lever of oil it didnt discover, doesnt know how to develop, and uses to intensify rather than alleviate its poverty that its entire culture is becoming an international pariah. Islamic young men on European flights are looked at with distrust; they are not welcome in Russia. China wants
none of them. They are wary of visiting India. Australia learned from Bali. The whole world is watching in disgust.
In short, the suicide bomber, the improvised explosive device, the car bomb, the televised beheading, the wacko fatwa, the sleazy propaganda streamer on the Internet, the new cult of death all cowardly and lethal phenomena these are now the innovations that the world associates with the Middle East in lieu of gene research, car production, or computer breakthroughs. If you look for gender equity in the Middle East, you wont find it in Arab Olympic delegations, Saudi schools, or the Iranian government, but in the opportunity for young women to blow themselves up right beside men. Indeed, killing infidels is the nascent womens-liberation movement of the radical Muslim world.

South Asian workers in Saudi
Rabiya Parekh 4 Apr 06, 03:51 PM Abdullah Al Mutairi has spoken out against an issue which seems to be prevalent in a lot of Middle Eastern countries, but is seldom talked about.
Sunny Hundal writing in Pickled Politics came across his article recently about the poor treatment of migrant workers in the Middle East.
Every year Indians, Pakistanis and other workers from the Indian Sub Continent flock to countries like Bahrain, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia for work as servants and labourers.
But many are treated poorly by their employers in their host countries. According the Abdullah there is a distinct lack of respect for these workers, who often do the jobs that many people don't like to do themselves.
But the prospect of a steady income and the need to provide for their families in South Asia keeps them there, putting up with bad treatment and poor labour rights.
We really want to hear from people who have family members working out in the Middle East, and in partcular an honest insight to how workers are treated from those who live there.
Why is the treatment of foreign workers so bad in the MIddle East? What is behind it? Have you ever worked there?

Saudi Arabia's legalised racism
A foreign female university professor “let's call her Hala“ teaches in Saudi Arabia. Her elderly parents come to visit - they go for a pilgrimage in the holy sites, then stay a few weeks at their daughter's.
As Hala goes to the visa office to request a 2-week extension for her mother, the officer in charge tells her it's okay and she needn't worry about it, her mother can stay these extra two weeks, no trouble at all.
As the mother goes to the airport, two weeks past her visa “ well, it's not okay. They let the old woman through but confiscate her daughter's passport (which is illegal, since she technically commited no crime, but since when did that matter in this country?)
The Saudi visa officer denies any involvement and refuses to even talk to Hala, who is consequently sentenced to a 10,000 SAR (3000 USD) fine and deportation. Deportation. No legal grounds are provided for this decision - there wasn't even a trial or anything. Just arbitrary. The officer in charge was probably upset of her being a single working female -- too much for his narrow intellect to fathom.
Only, she's a good professor, and her university intervenes “ not because they care for her, but because they need to keep her.
So, after 18 months - during which her passport remained confiscated and she had to stay in the country - the deportation sentence is lifted; the fine remains.
Poor Hala, unwilling to spend another summer vacation locked inside the country, decides to stop challenging the sentence and pay her unjust fine. The Saudi legal system is so biased against foreigners that fighting it can only lead to a worsening of one's case.
And this was Hala vs. the State: had it been Hala vs. citizen alpha, sheâ€™d probably be in jail on a bogus charge or something.
This is what Saudi Arabia is all about: extorting foreign labour, sucking them dry, then pissing over them
Saudi Arabia: Asian and African Witches Will be Hunted Down and "Terminated"... The current witch hunt, aimed mostly at Indian and Africans, appears to be a symptom of the racism inherent in the Arab culture.

(2008) (AKI) - A Saudi civil court has ordered an Asian immigrant to clean mosques next month during this year's Hajj pilgrimage to the holy city of Mecca after religious police caught him skipping Friday prayers several times, Saudi daily al-Watan reports. The man will have to clean five mosques along the highway into Mecca twice daily for eleven days, the court ruled...

Dubai lives the post-oil Arab dream
By Pepe Escobar
Jun 7, 2006
DUBAI - Welcome to the ultimate sociopolitical model for the 21st century: a Blade Runner-esque melting pot of neo-liberalism and "subterranean" economy, Sunni Arab Islam and low taxes, souks and artificial islands, a giant warehouse and a tourist paradise, life in the fast lane and post-modern slavery. The model spells out an apolitical, consumer-mad, citizenship-free society.
It's fair to argue what distinguishes a citizen from a non-citizen in a state where there's no democracy at all. The power of Dubai's absolute ruler, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum, could be defined as Genghis Khan-like. But if you're an immigrant coming from Iran's theocratic nationalism, India's bureaucratic nightmare or Pakistan's barely disguised dictatorship, the last thing you'll want is an interventionist state. So Deng Xiaoping's dictum - "to get rich is glorious" - ultimately prevails. Lee Kwan Yew applied it in Singapore - and it worked marvels.
Racism in Dubai - as in the US south - is pervasive, but off-limits to discussion, even as the fragile social pact between citizens and foreign residents, which in essence means "shut up and do your job", is faltering. A 15% minority could not possibly impose either its language or religion on a cosmopolitan majority - especially when religion is the Wahhabi interpretation of Islam. Thus (Western and Arab) men can get drunk in licensed bars, pubs and restaurants and (Western only) women can wear bikinis on the beach.
Meet the slaves The social pyramid in Dubai is unforgiving. At the base is the average construction worker, inevitably South Asian, either Pakistani or Indian. He's invisible. But he and his fellow workers now comprise an astonishing 80% of the UAE's population. Human Rights Watch has repeatedly complained that this archetypal construction worker is never treated like a human being. But the UAE power structure couldn't care less.
He works a minimum of 12 hours a day in up to 50 degrees, with a half-hour break, six days a week, and earns no more than $150 a month. He lives in a camp, four and sometimes as many as 12 to a 15-square-meter room lost in the dreary al-Quoz industrial suburb. On his day off, exhausted, he watches Bollywood video discs and catches up with news from home in the Deira souk. One night at the Emirates Towers (in a standard room) would consume five months of his salary. He can only come back home to see his family - which gets an average of 50% of his monthly salary - once every two years. If he's really lucky - or an elderly expat, a former skilled worker - he may eke out a comfortable living as a taxi driver.
He has no rights. Trade unions are banned. If he speaks up, he's instantly deported. Or, in desperation, he may follow the path of thousands who escaped to massive slums crammed with illegal immigrants in neighboring Sharjah. If she's a woman and works as a maid or in a hotel, she can be sexually harassed - and there will be no recourse.
Dozens of construction workers died in 2005. Most of these Spidermen of the Gulf simply fell from the huge new towers, as slings and ropes are not exactly high-tech. A worker died of suffocation in Palm Jumeirah, where the local press discovered that many were being fed half a lemon a day working in 45-degree heat. An array of dodgy companies is addicted to delaying payment of salaries - or not paying at all - as well as confiscating passports.
Slightly better off than the South Asians are the Filipinos, some other Southeast Asians and some Eastern Europeans serving - or playing - in bars, restaurants, hotels, the whole tourist, fun-in-the-sun industry.
Well-paid (and white) Westerners - more than 100,000 - live lavishly as engineers, surveyors, managers, analysts, teachers. The overwhelming majority are Anglos - British, Irish, South Africans, Australians. Every major Western and Japanese IT and audio-video giant, as well as every major financial-services company, is based in Dubai.
But there are many constraints even for the well off. If you are a non-UAE national, you can only buy land in designated "free zones". Foreign companies can only operate by paying a UAE kafeel (sponsor, guarantor) to be their local representative (it is a kafeel who also monopolizes the "import" of foreign workers). Only UAE nationals can work for the government. And education and health care are free only for UAE nationals - certainly not for the South Asians.
Finally, at the top of the pyramid is the al-Maktoum family and its associates, controlling and investing the well of cash derived from oil, exercising total political and social control and building the futuristic version of Arabia based on trade and finance.

They delude themselves in thinking they can build free markets and vibrant economies while their people still suffer oppression and lack basic freedoms. Rather each country should abandon Arabism and look inward for a definition of itself.

Terrorism: Pan-Arabism and Islam prompting evil.
(Written roughly two months before the September 11 Islamic attacks)
July 17, 2001. A reader´s review on "Culture and Imperialism" (by E. Said)
Before E. Said can legitimately condemn Western "domination" of other cultures, he ought to thoroughly examine the ills inflicted by Pan-Arabism and Islam on non-Arabs and non-Muslims throughout the Middle East and world. As mentioned by others, Arabs have subjugated--or all but eliminated--Egypt's Coptic Christians, Algeria and Morocco's Berbers, Sudan's southern Christians, Lebanese Christians and Iraqi Kurds. Then there are the Turkish Armenians. Sudan's Arab government actively pursues genocide and enslavement of Southern Sudan's Black Christians. Meanwhile, the Taliban have imposed Hitlerian restraints on Afghanistan's women and Hindu minority (that regime was eliminated by the US post 911 but Taliban's active aspiration remain the same). In Indonesia, Muslims are willfully murdering thousands of Christians.
Syrian society reviles the idea of peace with the Jewish people, exhorting all children to fight, kill and seek death, with the promise of both material reward for their families and eternal happiness in paradise. School texts inciting racial hatred, religious intolerance and, outright genocide to him seem emblematic of a "fundamentalist rejectionism," "older than the [Israeli] settlements, older than the state of Israel," reflecting the spirit of Jerusalem Grand Mufti Hajj Amin el-Husseini, who during World War II fled to Berlin, blessing Muslim SS arms and "begging Himmler to let him handle his own version of the final solution in Palestine against the Jewish settlers in Haifa, Jaffa and Tel-Aviv."
The constitution of Fateh--the PLO's "national, revolutionary" military wing-- invokes the vision of a Pan-Arab "nation" which would coincidentally eradicate Zionism, Israel and the Jewish people there. A Friday June 6 sermon broadcast live by the PA called for the enslavement of Israel's 5 million Jewish people as Dhimmis. "We welcome the Jews to live as Dhimmis, but the rule in this land and in all the Muslim countries must be the rule of Allah."
In this vein, the Arafat-appointed Jerusalem Mufti on June 29 incited Muslims to prepare "armies to fight the Jews and to remove Israel from Existence" and called for an Islamic Khilafah State, just as he has done in myriad Al Aksa Friday sermons...
Syrian Liberal Nidhal Na'isa On the West, Pan-Arabism, Islamism, and Al-Jazeera
MEMRI ^ | May 17 2007
Syrian liberal author Nidhal Na'isa began his career in journalism as a teenager, at the government dailies Al-Thawra and Syria Times,(1) but today he is a vocal opponent of the Arab regimes and the pan-Arab ideology, as well as of Islamism and Islamist terrorism. He has written that due to the Islamist "tsunami," the Middle East could be declared an "intellectual disaster zone"; that if one were to try to sell pan-Arab identity to "the bushmen and the cannibals" they wouldn't buy it; and that the pan-Arab media is "a harbinger of ill, pain, and destruction." In contrast, he praises the West for its humanism and its respect for the individual, and writes that, given the current state of affairs in the Arab world, the real question is not "why does the West hate us?" but rather why it does not.
The following are excerpts from some of Nidhal Na'isa's recent articles:
"We Could Declare [The Middle East] an Intellectual Disaster Zone After the Surging Fundamentalist Tsunami Swept Through"
In an interview published April 23, 2007 on the liberal Arab website Aafaq, Na'isa discussed the Islamist phenomenon:
"The world is swept up in globalization, whereas our unfortunate regions are being swept up everywhere by fundamentalism. We could declare [the Middle East] an intellectual disaster area after the surging fundamentalist tsunami swept through it.
"This is a wave that came after the slaughter, on the debris of the failure and disintegration of the leftist pan-Arab projects, [when] their intellectual hollowness and the superficiality of their proposals... became evident...
"Fundamentalism is a notion that disturbs the sleep of everybody concerned with the present and the future of this region. All of us are fundamentalists, when fundamentalism is taken in the sense of tenacious clinging to [our] opinion and rejection of the other. I see fundamentalism on the faces of all, in their thoughts and proposals. Nobody comes to terms with the other; no one pays attention to anyone else. In my view, this is fundamentalism in its more important and fuller meaning..."
"In Our Totalitarian Societies... Leaving [the Fold of] Collective Thought is Considered Error, Heresy, and Atheism"
When asked about the phenomenon of increasing religiosity in Syria, Na'isa said that it was part of "the spread of the culture of the herd and 'group' thinking, which means the negation of the individual and the individual's importance in creation, development, and originality."
He continued: "Western civilization was founded on unleashing individual initiative and glorification of individual reason and not collective reason, which is generally emotive and not of sound judgment.
"In our totalitarian societies, the collective 'I' prevails over the individual 'I,' and all become equals under the podiums of the [Islamic] jurisprudents. Leaving [the fold of] collective thought is considered error, heresy, and atheism..."
Na'isa's praise for the West does not, however, extend to current U.S. policy in the region, which he feels has been counterproductive and has fed extremism: "Much of the religiosity in our societies is based on the principle 'not out of love for 'Ali, but in order to spite Mu'awiya,' [i.e.] in order to spite the current regimes, and in order to goad George Bush and the U.S., which acts in a reckless, thoughtless, and foolish manner, and, through its policies, increases the strength of this [fundamentalist] current...
"So long as the [Syrian] nationalist opposition forces remain repressed and banned, and religious activity is the sole [kind of activity] permitted and tolerated, many will see in it a shelter for the expression of... their identities as [people who] reject the Arab constellation of despotism..."
The Syrian Media is "A Mongoloid Child, Retarded and Underdeveloped"
In the interview, Na'isa draws a clear distinction between past heroes of resistance to colonialism and those whom the modern Arab media crowns as martyrs:
"It goes without saying, and is clear to anyone with eyes to see, that there is a distinction between [on the one hand] someone who ends a life full of human giving and sacrifice... and who worked for a noble and lofty goal, and [on the other hand] someone with a black history... The lying pan-Arabist, Islamist-propagandist media will never succeed in creating saints and martyrs out of slaughterers, butchers, and hired killers...
"The hypocritical pan-Arab hissing [i.e. the pan-Arab media]... has poisoned our lives and turned them into a cheap lie.... The viper, before it bites, emits a hissing sound, which is a harbinger of ill, pain, and destruction."
Na'isa said of the Syrian media in particular that it is "a mongoloid child, retarded and underdeveloped."(2)
"In Truth, I Think That Those Wicked 'Infidels' Love Us More Than We Hate Them"
On April 22, 2007, Nidhal Na'isa published an article on the liberal Arab website Elaph titled "Why Don't They Hate Us?" in which he lampooned the Islamists' anti-West discourse:
"A great part of the fiery, devout, [Islamic] revivalist discourse... is based on [the claim] that the 'infidel' West is our mortal archenemy, that it hates us with the greatest hatred, and that it does not let any opportunity pass for hatching conspiracies and striking at us.
"[It is also based on the claim] that all of the backwardness, misery, deterioration, decline, defeats, and baseness currently present in the Arab and Muslim worlds are due to an uninterrupted flood of machinations on the part of those evil infidels. [The claim is] that they target our religion and our being because they have no religion, and because we are better than them in Allah's view, and that they envy us for this very reason.
"[The Islamists claim] that we are a great source of concern for [the West], and that we are their sole preoccupation and fear, and that the green [i.e. Islamic] 'giant' is ambushing them with its extraordinary capabilities of poverty, hunger, corruption, despotism, ignorance, prisons, delusion, superstitions, and preachers.
"[According to the Islamists, Islam] is, for this reason, the only one capable of destroying Western civilization, defeating it on its home ground, and wiping it out of existence through 'a few explosive belts' that do nothing other than kill and target Arab and Muslim children and their innocent blood.
"[They say that] the mother of all decisive [battles] the fateful war with the atheist, sinful infidels passes by way of those innocents, and that if it were not for accursed Israel, wicked America, the infidels, and the descendants of apes and pigs that lie in wait for us night and day, our countries and homelands would be like Copenhagen, Stockholm, Helsinki, and Oslo... When Allah rids us of those wicked, accursed people, we will live in tranquility and bliss, and live happily ever after, and we will have offspring, and girls whom we will dress in chadors, veils, and hijabs.
"But in truth... I think that those wicked 'infidels' love us much more than we hate them. If it were not for them, life would be transformed into hell and fire."
"London Has Become a Safe Haven for Fundamentalists Fleeing the Hell of Middle Eastern Despotism"
"[The West] has contributed greatly through material aid, technical expertise, and advisory assistance to many of the amenities of life we enjoy. Tens of millions of humans have benefited from the West's achievements in the sciences, and Western universities have opened [their doors] to the multitudes of students arriving from all countries of the world.
"They have granted citizenship and inducements material and other to all of the outstanding, the gifted, and the creative to live in those countries and even to those who were chased out of their own countries. For instance... London has become a safe haven for fundamentalists fleeing the hell of Middle Eastern despotism. They release, from London, their fiery communiqus for the destruction of the infidel West ...
"The prophecy has been fulfilled, and [these Islamists in London] have, in fact, become the only group to be redeemed from the inferno of tyranny, the hell of oppression, and the fire of despotism.
"It was the infidel West, for instance, that extracted oil from the Arabian desert, and turned it into a green paradise and expansive oases full of vitality. [In these oases,] various kinds of economic, intellectual, athletic and artistic activities flourish, and conferences and conventions are held to revile the infidel West and to accuse [other Arabs] of treachery, in the intoxicating atmosphere of the heart of the desert.
"If it were not for this massive technological aid, those countries would be living now as [they lived] in the earliest period of that great, time-honored history of theirs, before there was a West and before there were infidels.
"In addition, this infidel West dedicated its utmost efforts and thinking... to the medical sphere, and eliminated many of the contagious, infectious diseases that used to be predominant in the world. And it is this same West that gives [the Arabs] electricity with which to desalinate water...
If the West Were To Reciprocate the Enmity of the Arab Satellite Stations, "It Could Turn Their Lights Off and Send Them Back to the Early Camel Age"
"And it was [the West] that launched satellites 'that float in the sky'(3) [that made possible] the [Arab] satellite TV stations which show up every day on the [TV] screens, and which sprinkle their unique 'masterpieces' over mankind. If the West wanted to, and if it were to act with the same logic of unveiled enmity [as the Arab satellite stations do], it could turn their lights off with one push of a button and send them back to the deep black depths and the Early Camel Age...
"I believe that applying oneself to putting forward all of the overwhelming conclusive arguments concerning the humanism of the West, the loftiness of its endeavors, and the nobility of its intentions, would be... a pointless linguistic digression. The general concept can be summed up by [the fact] that the West has not been grudging in [sharing] its humanism and its civilization with others, and it demands of them only a bit of quiet if there is to be no good faith, recognition, and return of the favor...
"The world has become a narrow lane in a small global village. It listens, follows [developments], thinks, contemplates, and analyzes and it cannot at all fathom the motives and the goals of this hostile and vicious discourse of incitement that some tirelessly market, exploiting their alliance with despotic regimes.
"One painful conclusion can be drawn from all of this... [and it is] that the more logical question... is not 'why do they hate us?' if there is indeed some degree of hatred but rather 'why don't they hate us?'...(4)
Al-Jazeera Talk Shows as a Window on Arab Society
In an April 15, 2007 article on Elaph.com, Na'isa took issue with those who criticize the popular Al-Jazeera talk show "The Opposite Direction." In a rather backhanded compliment, he "praises" the confrontational show as an accurate, if pale, reflection of the conflictual state of contemporary Arab society:
"I don't understand why many criticize 'The Opposite Direction'... and call it... a cockfight, or a boxing ring, or a dialogue of the deaf.
"All the aforementioned program does is to pass on, through its participants and its unaffected interviews, some random aspects of a head-butting, fragmented Arab reality...
"'The Opposite Direction' is a microcosm of the larger 'opposite directions' that are to be found in every home, in the street, within every institution, group, and political party, and in every small gathering, even those around a hookah and a backgammon table in a popular caf, or in an out-of-the-way village.
"In fact, relatively speaking, ['The Opposite Direction'] is far less violent than what goes on in reality: the deafness, the anger, the resistance, the mutual shoving and head-butting. It often seems to me as though no one understands the other, and no one wants to listen to the other.
"If Allah, may He be praised and elevated and the fact that he has not done this is [due to] His great wisdom [but] if Allah were to bestow upon us weapons of mass destruction, we would destroy one another down to the last man... And then we could rest, and give tortured humanity a respite from our long and wearying problems, discussions, and talks.
"Hopefully our discussions will remain at the level of the 'The Opposite Direction' a 'bit' of yelling and vituperation... and will not transform into a deadly hell and tremendous bloodshed...
"So first off, I would like to sincerely thank all of the participants... in this program, because they express, in a true and spontaneous manner, the nature of our societies, their innermost being, without any 'touchup'... These are our people and our peoples. This is how we are. This is what we have to offer..."(5)
On the Arab Media's Version of "Arab Identity"
In an April 26 article on Elaph, Na'isa wrote: "The charlatan... propagandistic media glories in the bombastic term 'Arab identity,' and it extols it and promotes it as the heavens' gift to those sinking into a morass of backwardness...
"In truth, I tried hard, exhausted with fatigue and worn down by sleeplessness, and I [still] am trying, to define the basic characteristics of this identity vaunted by the Arab nationalists, professional pan-Arabists, and the Islamists, [thinking that] perhaps I could find a single reason or convincing explanation as to the uniqueness of this gift of nature that they dote on night and day.
"[I thought that] perhaps I could stumble on just one find by which I could advance a single proof concerning the enigma of the Zionist, colonialist, Burmese, Bengal, and Nepalese conspiracies to make this identity disappear from existence...
"I couldn't find any convincing reason [to make] people cleave to this identity, apart from a wicked and obscure desire, not free of bad intent, to take revenge on them, deceive them, and keep them in their state of misery, decline, and in their humiliating position.
"This identity has come to mean... oppression, despotism, coercion, repression, prison, mass graves, security chases, exploitation, persecution, the organized plunder of national resources, odious racist discrimination against minorities and women, monopolization of thought, talent, and creativity, and the punishment of the free. It contains many distinguishing characteristics, such as: corruption, fragmentation, wars, tribal conflict, clannishness, blood feuds, and deep-rooted hostilities that never had any basis in the first place.
"[In the Arab world] the ruler is the army boot..., dictatorship, demagoguery..., military coups, and deification of the leaders. Without these unique characteristics, Arab identity loses its... customary and familiar luster and glamour...
"In light of all of these saddening and oppressive facts, if we were to put this identity... up for sale to the bushmen or the cannibals in the jungle, to outcasts or refugees, to gypsies or to vagabonds would any of them agree to buy it?..."(6)

Arabism - Racism [concised info, Wiki style]
Arabism = racism!
Pan-Arabism and Arabization
A movement for unification among the peoples and countries of the Arab World, from the Atlantic Ocean to the Arabian Sea. It is closely connected to Arab nationalism which asserts that the Arabs constitute a single nation.
Pan-Arabism & Islam
At times Pan-Arabism has tended to be secular and often socialist, but often it embeds within it Islamic tradition and culture or Islamism (like the genocide in Darfur). and has strongly opposed colonialism and Western political involvement in the Arab world. Also historic Arabizing of the middle east  and in Africa that process is still going on today . Pan-Arabism is a form of nationalism and cultural nationalism.
There's a strong argument that Arabism was never detached from Islamism, To this day, Islam has retained its imperial ambitions. The dream of regional and world domination has remained very much alive, despite the destruction long ago of the last great Muslim empire, which has left the Islamic caliphate vacant. The 20th century doctrine of pan-Arabism (exemplified by Egypt's Gamal Abdel Nasser), though secular in appearance, has been effectively Islamic in its ethos, worldview, and imperialist vision. Karsh quotes Nuri Said, longtime prime minister of Iraq and a prominent early champion of pan-Arabism: "Although Arabs are naturally attached to their native land, their nationalism is not confined by boundaries. It is an aspiration to restore the great tolerant civilization of the early caliphate." .
At Baathism there was a greater link between Islamism & Arabism, Fascist movement, Ba'athism. Ba'athism's founding thinkers, the Syrians Sati al-Husri and Michel Aflaq, composed a Koranic super narrative of Arabism, soil and Islam. They wrote of an Islam as the great cultural and intellectual achievement of the Arab people, and it in turn formed a symbiotic relationship with Arabism, such that they flowed from one another, locked in an eternal embrace. .
In their book: "Case Studies on Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms: A World Survey" 1975, pg 88, Willem Adriaan Veenhoven, Winifred Crum Ewing write about Discrimination Case studies: After the 1860 Syrian massacres, the Christians had tried to promote an Arab nationalism, irritated the Muslims, Thanks to the theologians of Al Azhar, the two movements, antagonistic at first, fused into Islamic pan-arabism. Today it is clear that Islam and Arabism, are inseparable terms and that in fact, pan-arabism is synonymous with the cultural social and political rebirth of Islam... a true Arab must be Muslim. As long as modern Egypt will proclaim itself to be "essentially an Arab and Muslim land" uncertainty will continue to weigh on the Copts, the only remaining native religious minority after the forced departure of eighty thousand Jews. When Nasser came to power, Egypt resolutely turned its face towards Arabism ...became its staunchest champion and Cairo proclaimed Islamic unity pursued an active policy of pan-arabism which identified Islam with Arabism. The Precarious situation of the minorities became even ore acute. Was it possible to be a Christian and an Arab? .
At The 2006 Sixth Pan-Arab and Islamic Conference, The jihadists led by Sheikh Yusuf Qaradawi, included Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal, Hizbullah leader Hassan Hadroug and the Iraqi Sunni jihadist ideologue Sheikh Hathir al-Dari, Qaradawi put it, "Pan-Arabism and Islam are very closely linked" .
An Arabist can be referred to someone that is well knowledgeable of Arab culture and nationality but can also be referred to a radical nationalist anti non-Arab.
E. Karsh: Pan-Arabism causes conflict in the middle east .
As an ultra nationalist ideology it has been embedded with bigotry in its roots and in its motivated action.
In the words of political science professor Adeed Dawisha, pan-Arabism at its inception was deeply influenced by European fascism, with the result that "Arab nationalists, infused with the illiberal ideas of cultural nationalism, had almost nothing to say about personal liberty and freedom." Thus, in keeping with his pan-Arab beliefs, Maksoud has apologized or excused the excesses of assorted Arab tyrannies. .
1920's - '1930s - 1940s
In 'A History of Fascism, 1914-1945' - by Stanley G. Payne, page 515 he writes: Some of the new nationalist regimes which developed in the Middle East during the second half of the century exhibited more of the characteristics of fascism than those of any other part of the world. A first example was the Egyptian regime under Nasser, with its Fuhrerprinzip... Libyan dictatorship of Muammar al-Gadhafi a fanatical Muslim... "Brother Colonel" has renounced capitalism, preaching pan-Arabism and a form of "Arab socialism" while his interest in militarism, violence  and from page 352: (Iraqi) Futuwa ideologue, envisioning the "Arab nation" as eventually covering half the globe (though by conversion...) .
One of the classical combination of pan-Arabism & pan-Islamism was in the Mufti of Jerusalem, he had a pan-Arabism, pan Islamist character , (Jihad and) pan-Arabism in its violent form find a common root in him . he influenced Arabism to continue to wage war against non-Islamic nations and peoples .
'Arabism Equals Racism', in an elaborated article, Gerald A. Honigman writes on the "acceptance of anyone else's political rights in a multi-ethnic region that most Arabs see exclusively as "purely Arab patrimony." That's the Arab-Israel conflict in a nutshell; but it is also the core of the Arab-Berber, Arab-Kurd, Arab-Black African, Arab-Copt, Arab-Assyrian, Arab-non-Arab Lebanese conflicts, as well, among others. The Arabs' Anfal Campaign against the Kurds and their actions in Darfur and the rest of the southern Sudan are just a few of many examples of Arab genocidal actions against all who might disagree." .
The bigotry linkage of Arabism's supremacy and radical Islam, by A 'Short Critique of Islamic Fundamentalism' Around the late 1920s the Moslem Brotherhood was formed by Arabist thinkers racial supremacy . In the aftermath of 7/7/ London bombing a group calling itself: "Organization of Qaidat Al-Jihad in Europe" posted: Rejoice O Islamic nation. Rejoice O Pan-Arab nation. Rejoice, for the time of revenge on the British Zionist Crusading government has come .
Walid Phares writes about Arabism's denial of identity of millions of indigenous non-Arab nations as an ethnic cleansing on a politico-cultural level .
Christians of Iraq site published an extensive historic account on "The Foolishness of imposing Oppressive Arab Nationalism on Non Arabs, Non-Arab Muslim minorities such as the Amazigh, or Berbers, Kurds, and Turkmen found themselves officially out of favor. They faced the prospect of becoming "Arabized" or of being denied political and even civil rights. Groups that identified themselves as neither Arab nor Muslim had it even worse: Southern Sudanese, Copts, Jews, and Assyrians were plunged into a protracted nightmare that saw their communities ground into anonymity, forcing many to emigrate permanently. Even Maronites, whose retention of political power in Lebanon immunized them from utter marginalization, watched with alarm as Arab nationalist propaganda increasingly portrayed them as a foreign and sinister element in the heart of the Arab nation." 
Adel Makhoul wrote in May 1, 2005 about Pan-Arabists: Hiding Arab Racism, that they're agents of racism: Arab Racism, that always supported Arab unity and "Islam" at the expense of non-Arab and non-Moslem peoples and tries to deflect the world's attention from Arab and Moslem atrocities committed against Christians, Kurds, Jews, Israelis, Coptic Christians, non-Arab Sudanese, etc. he also points to the fact that Sadam Hussein's poisoning of the Kurds has never been condemned by one Arab intellectual or leader. This is because a racist prevalent attitude in the Arab mind is that the entire Middle East should be Arab. This also explains the attitude towards Israel, a country that is predominantly non-Moslem and speaks a Middle Eastern language other than Arabic. Michael Totten decries the tired Arab nationalist myth that Arabism protects Christians.

Assyrians explain that they simply want to live in peace and freedom but have been suffering ethnic cleansing from Islamists and pan-Arabists , Bakr Sidqi, the Baghdadi army's chief responding to the zealous cry of the new pan-Arab fascists organised the cold blooded massacre of innocent Assyrians , Assyrian writers explain that: The deep and hidden reason of the tyrannical oppression practiced throughout the Middle East is the imposition of pan-Arabic nationalist cliques that intend to dictatorially arabize the various peoples of the Middle East, who are ? all ? not Arabs , they are part of any other non-Arab group that was "Arabized" by brutal Arabization  & a "new morality" of Arabism .
The Kurds in Syria between 2 to 2.5 million  they're second class citizens, for many not citizens at all, the attempts of Erasing Ethnic Identity. Syrian Kurds were banned from giving their children names reflecting their ethnic identity. Pary Karadaghi, Director of Kurdish Human Rights Watch in Washington, says one of the most basic ways of showing Kurdish identity was taken away. "The campaign of 'Arabization' actually replaced the Kurdish names, People could not have Kurdish names on cities, buildings [and] businesses. Children's names could not be Kurdish." Syria's Kurds struggle for years to survive despite government oppression on many fronts.  , they've been subjected to racist Arabist policies  And a cry against Syria's oppression has gone out. .
As a wave of pan-Arabism swept the Middle East in the 1950s and 1960s, the Syrian government decided in 1962 to strip thousands of Kurds of their citizenship. The method: a census supposedly designed to root out "alien infiltrators" from Turkey. If a Kurd could not prove residency in Syria since 1945, he or she lost Syrian citizenship. ... Kurds in Syria are designated as "foreigners", The Baath Party launched an official Arabization campaign in 1963 that began to stamp out Kurdish street names, Kurdish publications, and even Kurdish personal name .

On the racist gang rape spree by Arab Lebanese in Australia targeting specifically white girls, From the Sydney Morning Herald 2002 Racist rapes: Finally the truth comes out, So now we know the facts, straight from the Supreme Court, that a group of Lebanese Muslim gang rapists from south-western Sydney hunted their victims on the basis of their ethnicity and subjected them to hours of degrading, dehumanising torture. The young women, and girls as young as 14, were "sluts" and "Aussie pigs", the rapists said. So now that some of the perpetrators are in jail, will those people who cried racism and media "sensationalism" hang their heads in shame? Hardly.

Pan-Arabism's anti-Jewish ideology
The champion of pan-Arabism Egypt's Gamal Abdel Nasser used the infamous anti-Semitic "protocols" libel in his war against Israel. , Both pan-Arabism and pan-Islamic ideologies looked to Hitler's Germany as a model Haj Amin al-Husseini expressed his admiration for the way 'the Germans have definitively solved the Jewish problem,'  & Gamal Abdel Nasser's affinity for the Mufti was great , Joachim Wurst describes the emergence and psychological mechanisms of modern anti-Semitism and particularly of genocidal Islamist anti-Semitism. He traces the development of this trend from the Muslim Brotherhood and the Mufti of Jerusalem in the 1930s and 1940s through the pan-Arabism of the 1950s and 1960s up to the present-day Islamism. .
Racism in Arabism was already strong in the 1920's, Dr. Kaveh Farrokh explains that to understand the awkwardness (and indeed irrationality) of pan-Arabism (or any form of racialism), one is compelled to also briefly learn about the true founders of the B'aath party; Michel Aflaq and Salah al-Din al-Bitar. Both were born in Damascus, they formed their party on the basis of pan-Arabism, like the movements that had taken place in neighboring Iraq in the 1920s. Another influential and French (Sorbonne) educated Syrian, was Zaki al-Arsuzi. Al-Arsuzi was especially outspoken in his racism against the local Turks of Syria and especially venomous in his hatred against the Jews  He proves that Pan-Arabism is an extremely racist and chauvenistic movement on par with Nazism, whose ideology is anti-western, anti-Jewish and anti-Persian. 
1800's & 1920's.
The origin of anti-Jewish feelings among Arabs do not originate from what they perceive as 'the occupation of Palestine' and the creation of Israel. Even before the creation of the Israeli state in 1948 on what was before Palestine, a largely uninhabited terrain, many Jews were recorded attacked in various settlements by Arabs since the late 1800's .
'Historical and Investigative Research' examines if Arab anti-Jewish racism in the first half of the 20th c. (that was marked already then with slaughtering of Jews with the racist shouting of Itbach al Yahud - kill the Jews) was fundamentally indifferent from the European variety . On March 1, 1944. the famous Mufti: Amin Al-Husseini makes speech from Berlin addressing Muslim SS Nazi troops: "Kill the Jews wherever you find them. This pleases God, History and Religion. This saves your honor. God is with you." .
On Syria's Baathism's racism  Major ideas of Baathism center around racism and anti-Semitism. The Baath party stems from the Pan-Arab movement , examples: Syrian Daily Al Baath, October 21, 1998 had an antisemitic cartoon, and on October 21, 1998 on Syrian TV: In these days, all of us, Arabs and Muslims, must stand together against the Jews .
Egypt has played gross anti-Jewish TV extravaganza "Horse without Horseman" which also portrays the Arab/Israeli conflict in an antisemitic anti-Jewish format . so do anti-Jewish themes in Hezbollah Media.  Memri documents Anti-Semitism in the Arab world , So does the ADL , Saudi Arabia bans Jewish visitors . Pew's finding in 2005 found that in Muslim nations such as (even moderate) Jordan most viewed Jews unfavorably. .
But it knows no borders, of the ADL's records documenting antisemitic attacks worldwide , the larger portion of those listed since 2002 (to 2008) were attributed to Arabs, especially those in Europe, in a sport game in Chile, Non-Jewish Goldberg (mistaken for Jew) made headlines after fans of Palestino, a Chilean team set up by Palestinian Arabs hurled racial slurs, 'They called me J. garbage' .
In 2007 the London editor of pan-Arab daily was praying for Iranian nuclear genocide attack on Israel  "if the Iranian missiles strike Israel, by Allah, I will go to Trafalgar Square and dance with delight." circulating its propaganda to about 50,000 readers .
A few examples in France: Already in October 2000 among a very long and troubling list of attacks, Jews threatened and shoved by Arabs outside O.Y. Synagogue in Paris (first of two incidents) & 'Death to Jews' painted on two Synagogues in Marseilles , between 2000-2001 200 Arabs attacked Jews on the Champs Elysees , in March 2003 French Arab Muslims attack Jews in Paris in an "anti-war" march , in 2003 Jewish congregations in Sweden have noted a sharp increase in "harassment threats and attacks by Arabs and Muslims against Jews , in 2004 Six Arab youths attacked a twenty three year old young mother with her thirteen month old baby  after "deciding" she was Jewish, cut her hair with knives, slashed her clothes and scrawled swastikas on her belly in black felt-tip pen ,in March 2006 Jews attacked in Paris suburbs by Arabs  in June 2008 Jewish Boy Attacked by Arab Muslim Mob in Paris , A 17-year-old French Jew Rudy Haddad attacked by North-Africans (Arabs) Jewish teen brutally beaten in apparent anti-Semitic attack in Paris, "[Sarkozy] assures the victim and his family of his support and renews his total determination to fight all forms of racism and anti-Semitism," said a statement from Sarkozy's office. A 23-year-old French Jew, Ilan Halimi, was found naked, tortured and covered in burns near Paris on February 13, 2006, after being held captive for three weeks. He died on the way to the hospital. The crime shocked France and raised fears of surging anti-Semitism among French Muslims. In February of this year, another Jewish teenager was tortured in the same town in which Halimi was killed, in yet another anti-Semitic attack. .
At the UN
The Arab Lawyers Union of Egypt in Durban in 2001, distributed a booklet of violently Anti Jewish cartoons and has, since then, continued its incitement to Jew-hatred .
Jeremy Jones wrote in a report in 2004 on Australia that some of the most overt anti-Jewish rhetoric in recent years has come from the Muslim and Arab groups & communities, and within the Arab and Muslim communities there is a group of activists who seek at every opportunity to denigrate Jews, not only in association with attacks on Israel .
Columbia University's investigation into charges of anti-Jewish intimidation by Arab professors .
Harassment on Jewish students in Canadian universities by Arabs like in Carleton , Concordia University  which has been described by some as "centre of militant Arabism in Canada" .  there were charges (in 2002) of militant Arabism in Canada's Concordia University.
On May 7 2002, an example has been seen at the SFSU while a large, angry crowd of Arab Palestinians and their supporters swarmed a Jewish peace rally (where students wore t-shirts that said "peace" in English, Hebrew and Arabic) members, used physical violence, and shouted "Get out or we will kill you" and "Hitler did not finish the job"   .
November 2008, Arab Students at UC Berkeley Disrupt Israel Event, Attack Jews The Arab students unfurled the large flag on a balcony above the outdoor site where the concert was taking place, inciting a provocation right in front of the concert-goers, who were enjoying the event as part of the campus' Israel Liberation Week. Several Jewish concertgoers went into the building to ask the Arabs to remove the flag – but were viciously attacked, with one male concertgoer knocked down from a blow on the back of his head, witnesses said. College alumnus Gabe Weiner, who was helping run the concert, was assaulted by the leader of the anti-Israel group, Husam Zakharia, who also attacked one of the performers, Yehuda De Sa. The fight was finally broken up by John Moghtader, a senator in the UC Berkeley student organization. Police were called in and arrested Zakharia along with others from his group, charging them with battery. Witnesses said that the Arab students shouted anti-Semitic curses and epithets throughout the incident, calling the Jews “Nazis” and “dogs,” .
There are complaints against the Muslim Students Association MSA of racism against Jews coming from its Arabs, Muslims, in 2008 Author David Horowitz, a popular conservative writer, was derided in a Nazi-like anti-Semitic cartoon, put out by the Muslim Student Association. The cartoon, which was copied and spread around campus, portrays Horowitz, a Jewish man, as a hooked-nose Nazi hiding in a trash can .
Roots and cause of Middle east conflict
Pundits explain that the conflict in the middle east Arabs Vs Israel (that started with racist massacres on Jews accompanied with the slogan "Itbach al Yahud - Kill the Jews"  already in the 1920's , through Hitler's buddy  the Mufti Mohammad Amin al-Husayni is just another Arab Muslim intolerance, the plight of Israel - being a minority in a majority hostile middle east.      And even progressive, left wingers in Israel realize that Arab racism must go, and that "There will be no peace around here before Arabs view Jews as human beings." , or as others have phrased it: Racism and Middle East Politics, As long as middle-eastern Arabs teach their children to hate Jews, there will be no lasting peace . 'Facts and Logic About the Middle East' asks: Racism in the Islamic World How can peace prevail in the Middle East in the face of Islamic bigotry and hate? When will moderate Muslims speak out? , and the phenomenon of the new anti-Semitism which demonizes Jews and Israel alike, has fused itself with the "old" European anti Jewish bigotry . Saddam Hussein's "Three Whom God Should Not Have Created: Persians, Jews, and Flies"  who also led a racist  genocide campaign  against the Kurds, coincides with that in moments before his death, he shouted: 'Palestine is Arab', meaning only Arab. , as part of a culture of hatred, the racism that denies historic roots of the Jews to Israel .
The first recorded Arab attack on Jews in Palestine was already back in 1886 in Petach Tikva   .
Regarding the racist expulsion of 850,000 to 900,000 Jews from Arab countries   the ethnic cleansing of the Jews , the UN Watch Mar 19, 2008 has raised the importance of Historic truth in: Testimony at the UN - "Racism and Historical Truth: Jewish Refugees from Arab Lands" .
